Having a shared focus on research and a reputation for academic achievement is a catch-all term for a group of universities known as the Russell Group of Universities in UK.
Just like Ivy League Universities in USA, the Russell Group has a certain buzz around the member universities for Study in UK. These universities represent some of the big names in higher education as a part of the Russell Group which is named after the hotel where the universities met back in 1994.
The member universities are all research powerhouses as the group places emphasis on the importance of research, producing some of the most well-regarded and most influential papers year after year. Originally in 1994, 17 university heads met at the Hotel Russell in London to ensure that their interests were represented to the UK government. In today’s date Russell Group represents 24 UK universities who are committed to maintaining excellent research, whilst providing outstanding teaching and learning experiences for their students who contribute to the economic and cultural life of the UK together with the institutions.
